Working with IKEA

A positive team spirit

We’re a diverse group of down-to-earth, straightforward people with a passion for home furnishing. We come from all over the world but we share an inspiring vision: “to create a better everyday life for the many people”. How we realize this vision is based on our shared humanistic values. These values are the foundation of our work and our inclusive, empathizing, open and honest culture.

Working with us is like working with your friends. Our culture is based on the spirit of togetherness, enthusiasm and fun. And we’re always looking for people who share our positive attitude and values.

IKEA careers are different. Hear some of our co-workers talk about their experiences.

IKEA Values

Leadership by example
Our managers act according to IKEA values, create an atmosphere of well-being and expect the same from co-workers.

We take an easy-going, straightforward approach when solving problems, dealing with people or facing challenges.

Striving to meet reality
We stay true to practical solutions to develop, improve and make decisions based on reality.

Constantly being “on the way”
We review what’s done today and ask what can be done better tomorrow, so we can find new ideas and inspiration.

Low prices are impossible without low costs, so we proudly achieve good results with small resources.

Constant desire for renewal
We know that adapting to customer needs with innovative solutions contributes to a better everyday life at home.

Humbleness and willpower We respect each other, our customers and our suppliers. Using our willpower means we get things done.

Daring to be different
We question old solutions and, if we have a better idea, we are willing to change.

Togetherness and enthusiasm
Together, we have the power to solve seemingly unsolvable problems. We do it all the time.

Accept and delegate responsibility
We promote co-workers with potential and stimulate them to surpass their expectations.

Development opportunities
Every IKEA co-worker gets the opportunity to create a development plan. Together with your manager, you set goals for the coming year and the future.

Even lower prices
